About 22 miles and 2+ hours after leaving the cabin, we stopped in Truckee, CA for a pit stop. Outside one shop in Historic Truckee were these three snow creatures. I guess when you get this much snow all winter, every winter, you get pretty creative and move beyond snow people.
We certainly never went fast enough for the "snowhawk" to blow off the car.
Luckily we didn't stay too long in Truckee, or we too would have been stuck on I-80 when it closed.
